Release the Russia report - government are showing utter contempt for the electorate - please sign and share.

We know there's considerable evidence that Russia interfered with the EU referendum, not least because it was such a positive result for their geopolitical aim to divide the EU.  Dominic Grieve, someone who speaks with some authority on matters of state, said there was no reason whatsoever that the ...

Re: Development of Tooting Common

I've signed this petition because it's yet another example of the privatisation of public space. Far too much public space has already been sold off, and I hope this bit of Tooting Common is saved. It might be 'open to all' but not everyone will be able to afford to use it, so it doesn't provide equ...

Re: Dominic Cummings sacking petition exceeds 1m

Daddydaycarerocks, I think this goes way beyond politics, but even if it didn't, I'm perfectly entitled to post this and have been thanked by other members of this community for doing so.  Please stop trying to speak for everyone on here because they clearly don't all share your view that this is 'n...

Dominic Cummings sacking petition exceeds 1m

Everyone will have their own take on DC’s behaviour. Personally I think his ‘eye test’ excuse for the trip to Barnard Castle displays utter contempt for the public’s intelligence, taking us for fools and is shameful. If you think similarly, please sign and share https://www.change.org/p/dominic-cumm...

Re: Back to school?

I think it’s important to note that many of the countries able to emerge safely from lockdown sooner have much better systems for testing, tracing and isolating than we do. Plus scientists can’t even agree on this so yes, as others have noted, you have to choose who you believe... https://www.thegua...

Re: Back to school?

Asmac, thanks for your generosity, and useful take. Do you have any links to the transmission in children?  Given what we know, I'm inclined to send my year 1 child back (and more worried for the staff than the kids), but still hoping that there's much more of a consensus among scientists and teachi...

Re: Risk of transmission of virus from dogs chewing balls of other households in public spaces. Please share

The risk might be small but I still think we should reduce it if we can. https://www.npr.org/sections/goatsandsoda/2020/03/27/822591449/coronavirus-faqs-does-it-live-on-clothes-can-my-dog-infect-me-any-advice-on-wipe Agree, perhaps not police reports aren’t optimal atm, but we somehow need to change...

Thanks Gingerfizz, not suggesting they are infected or carriers but simply that a dog’s fur or nose is somewhere the virus can exist for a period of time.

Risk of transmission of virus from dogs chewing balls of other households in public spaces. Please share

We’ve been taking our daily exercise on Wandsworth Common north side and by and large people are being really sensible and keeping the two metres distance. However, this is all potentially undermined by some allowing their dogs to run around freely, inevitably chewing the balls of children from othe...

Re: Local group set up for tactical voting and vote swapping to achieve a second referendum - Remainers please read!

Couldn't agree more with everything you say Starr, I'll absolutely be campaigning for  https://www.makevotesmatter.org.uk/  above all else, because we won't get sensible politics until we have PR, and we're in dangerous constitutional territory with this govt, fricking power grab. Oh for a leader li...

More peopled voted for parties supporting a 2nd referendum, than voted for parties in favour of Brexit.

So, rather than bury this at the bottom of a pre-General Election thread, I thought it deserved to be highlighted.   If you count the total votes in the election FOR parties that were advocating for a second referendum (Labour, Lib Dems, Greens, Plaid, SNP, Independents) then they considerably outn...

Re: How I’m voting to Labour to Remain in Battersea and why I’ve done a tactical vote swap to help the Lib Dems.

Well, hey Greengrass, it's really interesting that your VERY FIRST post on this forum is a long and highly political one, at a crucial time, which seeks to conflate a number of issues and sow dischord among remain and Labour. I think you're a fake account.  Care to tell us your favourite local pub a...

The vote swapping site  https://www.swapmyvote.uk/  cleverly links people on social media so you can check each other out and many people's political inclinations are fairer clear from their twitter and facebook feeds these days. You can also chat to your swappee on the phone and see what else you m...

Re: How I’m voting to Labour to Remain in Battersea and why I’ve done a tactical vote swap to help the Lib Dems.

Thanks to everyone for the positive contributions, good to see the post top of the 'most read' threads.  It's great to see so much media focus on tactical voting and vote swapping too, it seems many more people are aware of it and considering it.  I've managed another two vote swaps today. I've done...
